Basics of using Draw.Chat

Boards can be created in several ways. You can create an empty board, use an image as a background, a PDF document, a map, create a multi-page board from multiple images or documents, or use a configurator to have control over all board settings.

Creating a whiteboard

You can create a whiteboard by clicking the "Create new Whiteboard" button. The board will receive a new, random address and an administrator password will be assigned to it, which will be appended to the URL to which it will be automatically redirected.
